It’s that special and somewhat daunting time—starting your baby on solids. For the first 6 months, or thereabouts, of your baby’s life, they’ve survived purely on breast milk and/or infant formula. And now it’s their first big food leap, into the wondrous world of solids!
Even though your baby may be showing interest in starting solids, actually getting the food into their mouth can be a whole other challenge. At first the food is likely to end up everywhere other than in their tummy: on their face, in their hair, on the furniture, even on the family cat or dog. So when you’re starting your baby on solids, here’s what you’ll need to make it an easy and smooth transition.
Why the texture of the food is important when starting solids
When your baby is first starting solids, the texture of the food you offer them is quite important. Up until this point they’ve only consumed liquids, so by offering foods that are close to this in texture, they will feel more familiar to your baby.
This means starting your baby on a whole lot of pureed food.
How Sinchies can help when introducing solids
Here at Sinchies, we know what it’s like when you’re trying to introduce your baby to solids: things don’t always go according to plan or as smoothly as you might have hoped.
That’s why we’ve developed our products with parents in mind. We want to help make life that little bit easier for you, and more enjoyable for your baby.
Here are our top picks of products when starting solids.
Sinchies 140ml pouches
Our Sinchies 140ml pouches are the perfect size for storing baby food puree. They’re also great if you’re planning to be out and about with your baby as you can fit ice cubes of frozen puree in them. This way, when you stop for a food break with your bub, their food will be nice and cool.
These are available in 2 styles:
Child safe anti-choke lids
People use our Sinchies pouches for all kinds of things (even to store sunscreen!). But as you’ll be using them to feed your baby, we highly recommend getting a few of our special child safe anti-choke lids.
Sinchies Sip’N Lids
Our Sip’N lids are made from silicone, so they’re nice and soft on your baby’s mouth, and completely safe. They’re also a great ‘no spills’ solution when starting your baby on solids.
Our reusable baby food weaning pouch spoons make starting solids so much easier. Simply screw them on to the end of your pouch and squeeze! The puree will come right out on to the spoon, ready to feed your baby.
With these special products, starting solids can be so much fun! And instead of worrying about how to start your baby on solids, or what to use, you can get to back to bonding and enjoying the ride.
